The Concert Under the Stars has become the kick-off event of the summer. Different from the typical benefit gala, the Concert is a casual “boots and blue jeans” affair with delicious local food and drink, fabulous upbeat music, and an unparalleled historic setting. It is truly not to be missed!

(Though we’re super excited for some 80’s tunes, the 80’s theme ends there! Anticipate our traditional “boots and blue jeans” vibe – no need to dress up in costume!)

Travel back in musical time with us at the Concert Under the Stars!


The Breakfast Club

2019 Mainstage Act

HSP is thrilled to welcome The Breakfast Club®, the longest running, most recognized ’80’s tribute band in the United States, to the Concert’s main stage.  Formed in 1993, the group was the first of its kind.  The mission was simple: create an entertainment group that embodied the enigmatic, creative, and buoyant spirit of music and live performances of the original MTV generation of the 1980’s.  That mission remains today. The guys of The Breakfast Club® have shared the stage with numerous music legends, including but not limited to, Whitesnake, The Romantics, Poison, Drivin’n’Cryin’, Hootie and the Blowfish, White Lion, The Smithereens, Edwin McCain, and many others. When these talented band members take the stage, you’ll discover why The Breakfast Club® has millions of enthusiastic fans.


Gerry Rosenthal Trio

2019 Opening Act

The Gerry Rosenthal Trio was formed in Jersey City, NJ in 2015 with Gerry Rosenthal on acoustic guitar and lead vocals, Jack Breslin on upright bass, and Sean-David Cunningham on violin. Gerry’s songs fall directly into the Americana/Folk/Singer-songwriter category, with comparisons to Mumford and Sons, Punch Brothers, and Ben Folds, rounded out with three-part harmony and improvised instrumental and solos sections. They released an EP in April of 2019 entitled “First,” available everywhere music is purchased and streamed!
